In the most extensive revision yet of his best-selling classic, Reading God's Word Today, this edition brings Scripture to life for everyone from beginners to seasoned veterans of Bible study for a fuller relationship with God.
What ca I do to understand Scripture more clearly?
How can I hear what God is saying to me through Scripture?
How should I apply the messages of the Bible to my life?
How can I go deeper in prayer through Scripture?
Along with persuasive instruction and personal examples, Martin delivers practical suggestions reading Scripture in order to understand both the context and the purpose for which it was written-opening the door for the Holy Spirit as God speaks directly to you through the text.
Study guides at the end of each chapter, interesting sidebars, and directions to Internet resources will stimulate personal reflection and also provide the basis for small-group discussion of this eminently practical, yet personal, approach to understanding the Scriptures.
